This is actually a very close conversion of a 1980 Midway arcade game called 'Space Zap'.
Good fun if you are looking for a mindless 'twitch' shooter.

A fun multi-package game.
Game 1 - Space Fortress - Your base is in the middle of the screen. Hit the arrow keys to point to the four sides of the screen. CTRL "Shoots" a laser at approaching dangers / projectiles.
Game 2 - Draw - Two cowboys 'duel' with a cactus in the middle. CTRL 'shoots'.
Game 3 - Checkmate - A "Tron" / block the others in type of game. Enter number of games. it has to be a two digit number, so if you want to only play, say 3 games, type 03. Then number of players. the rest of the game is played with arrow keys and then you try and 'block in' the other three players. when they snake / run out of space their 'paths' / walls disappear.
Game 4 - Calculator - Not sure how to make it work
Game 5 - Scribbling - An early "Paint" type game. Hold down CTRL to make a mark/draw. Release to stop drawing. Arrow cursors move the 'pen' as you draw. Simple.
The original Space Fortress manual from 1981 is here:
